    A Patient’s Healthcare Story

    My name is Cecelia Chung. I am a residence in San Francisco and I am also a commissioner on the San Francisco Human Rights Commission. I had a bad experience in Hospital with when I first began my transition. I had really severe abdominal pain I went into Emergency Room. They immediately dismissed my symptoms.

It’s a sad reality that LGBT people still face discrimination in healthcare. A study by Lamda Legal in 2010 reported that 56 percent…

    How fainting couch feminism threatens freedom | FACTUAL FEMINIST

    I have been lecturing on college campuses for more than twenty years. I’ve seen lots of hijinks, but nothing like what is happening today. Safe-space fainting couch feminists are taking over. And their own professors find them scary. That’s coming up next on the factual feminist. Consider what happened to feminist professor Laura Kipnis at Northwestern University. She wrote an essay making light of trigger warnings and safe spacers. Two graduate students found her views “terrifying” and filed Title IX harassment charges against her. Her university, apparently intimidated by the grad students, took their charges seriously. The University carried out a formal investigation of the professor and her “offending” essay.…

    Cops In Minneapolis Create Shirts To Wear To Trump Rally After Liberal Mayor BANS Uniforms

    The Democrat mayor of Minneapolis is trying to “antagonize” and “bully” President Trump to discourage him from coming to the historically blue state, a police union leader said, Fox News reports. Lieutenant Bob Kroll, president of the Police Officers Federation of Minneapolis, said on “Fox & Friends” that Mayor Jacob Frey is discriminating against Trump ahead of his upcoming rally at the Target Center on Thursday. Kroll’s claims are in line with Trump’s campaign manager, Brad Parscale, who accused Frey of “abuse of power” over a proposed $530,000 security fee to use the arena. “It’s disparate treatment,” Kroll said. “They have not charged nearly that much for other events…” Trending:…

    The 3,000 Page Constitution

    People like us, people that are frustrated with Washington, D.C., often say, “Well, they don’t follow the Constitution anyway.” Not true. They follow the wrong one. They’re following the constitution as interpreted by the Supreme Court rather than the Constitution as written. This, I’m taking it out of my pocket, is a pocket Constitution. 4,000 words in the original document, 4,400 words, and if you count the amendments it’s about 7,000 words. Here is the constitution enforced today. This is three thousand pages of Supreme Court rulings showing what every ruling has done to the original words. This isn’t going to get any smaller. In fact every time they publish…
